Samugghātasāruppa Sutta

1. Samugghātasāruppa Sutta.– Monks, I will teach you the way suitable for the uprooting of conceptions. Here, a monk does not conceive the eye, in the eye, from the eye, that ‘the eye is mine.’ He does not conceive forms … eye-contact … eye-consciousness … feelings arisen from eye-contact … the ear … sounds … the nose … odours … the body … touches … the mind … ideas. Since he does not conceive anything thus, he does not cling to anything, and is liberated. S.iv.21.

2. Paṭhama Samugghātasāruppaya Sutta.– Similar to the above. Whatever one conceives is impermanent, subject to change, and becoming otherwise. S.iv.23.

3. Dutiya Samugghātasāruppaya Sutta.– Regarding the above six senses the Buddha questions the monks whether they are permanent or impermanent, suffering or happiness, and what is impermanent and suffering should not be regarded as, ‘This is mine, I am this, this is my self.’ Seeing thus the well-instructed noble disciple has revulsion towards the sense, becomes dispassionate, and is liberated from suffering. S.iv.24.
